SMART Columbus Live Comes to New Albany!
The New Albany Chamber of Commerce is pleased to bring the SMART Columbus Live presentation to New Albany on June 21, 2018, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at Commercial Vehicle Group, 7800 Walton Parkway, New Albany. Our featured C-Suite speaker Michael Stevens, Chief Innovation Officer for the City of Columbus, will give us a glimpse into the future of mobility and our role in helping this region-wide initiative succeed.

Smart Columbus has a vision that starts with the reinvention of mobility, which will lead us to a future beyond what anyone has yet imagined. In 2016, Columbus competed against 77 cities nationwide to win the Smart City Challenge. Columbus now has the important job to:
  • Improve people’s quality of life
  • Drive growth in the economy
  • Provide better access to jobs and ladders of opportunity
  • Become a world-class logistics leader
  • Foster sustainability
